Ships from and sold by jhsbooks2. Only 4 left in stock (more on the way). It seems that Susan Matthews wanted to give readers some insight into how the Bench could change, and offer some hope of a brighter future after the grimness of the earlier books in this series. The problem is that in doing so, she took her narrative far afield from Andrej Koscuisko, the most interesting character. From the beginning, it's been his story, his complex psychology, his own "warring states" of honor and sadism which have been the primary appeal of the Jurisdiction books.

The Ragnarok's legal status has been ambiguous since it shot its way out of Taisheki Station to escape a threat against the lives of its innocent crew. The Ragnarok's legal status has been ambiguous since it shot its way out of Taisheki Station to escape a threat against the lives of its innocent crew. Ship's Inquisitor Andrej Koscuisko hopes to take advantage of this period of chaos and unrest to see his bond-involuntary Security slaves somehow freed and sent to Gonebeyond space.
Warring States is the sixth book in the Jurisdiction series. The first half of this book was slow, I won’t lie. Lots of setup, lots of obscure politicking, and Andrej himself offstage a lot. But in the second half (around the time of a unfortunate explosion) things pick up, and the second half is really enjoyable. Andrej’s story is fairly straightforward and a bit bare. He has surreptitiously removed the mental Governors from his security teams’ brains, and has conspired to send them beyond Jurisdiction space. The political murder/mystery is a good bit more complicated, and the payoff is pretty good.
